Shame, shame, shame on me!
But I left to go out of town on Tues. morning, and I have been hanging with the family and my G-babies this entire week and will be----most of this next week, so I HAVE A GOOD EXCUSE! Finally.
I can always tell when I haven't been out there reading your blogs----I have a huge drop in comments----I know....it shouldn't matter, but since I actually love to comment, as I ENJOY making someone feel good that their blog is being read, I hope that everyone out there understands that it does the same for me!
My day has been brightened many a time from comments from all of you-----so keep commenting! It can turn a rough day into a fantastic day.....
That said.......I read this in the blog of a super amazing blogger, M Cat, as she likes to call herself----she is an uber athlete, a terrific lady and I am really excited to be meeting her this week-----it is going to be one of the highlights of my visit to Utah! I am also hoping to meet the super-de-duper Tiburon, aka the Shark, the dancing queen, Arianne, the amazing Mom, Susette, and the feisty Rachel! I have grown to love these ladies from their blogs and am super excited to meet them in real life.
Don't worry, I will be posting about it after I get back----and yes, I WON'T FORGET MY CAMERA!!
